Mondial Owners List

Thought it would be a good idea to make a list of Mondial owners on Ferrarilife

Please post up a picture of your Mondial and some info about it. It's up to you what info you want to provide but an example would be:

Model: Mondial t Coupe
Year: 1990
Country: Monaco
Steering: LHD
Chassis number: 98567
Ferrari colour: Rosso Corsa
Interior colour: Nero


In order to keep the thread on topic, please only post once in this thread with all the info you would like to provide on your Mondial.

Thanks.

Mondial T : Red/Tan, 1990

http://www.ferrarilife.com/register/view.php?id=86247

Updates to this registry entry:

1. Now used as a daily driver, when not using the 456.
2. Has, as of Nov. 24, 2009 about 34,000 miles
3. Starting to develope a slight whine in the power assisted steering: which I'll have to address -- AGAIN. last time just changed the fluid and good to go.
4. Doing a tonneau for it, the new leather seats. Will be doing a 2nd set of front seats for daily, then put in pristine original fronts when showing or [gulp] selling to next owner.
5. Side stakes, showing signs of age, as this year used plastic. Have a 1 year older set made of metal, which will be re-painted and replaced.
6. Have many extra parts, that are the original, keeping for next owner, as part of original full mfgr. 'stuff'.

My Mondial

Model: Mondial 8
Year: 1982
Country: Canada
Steering: LHD
Chassis number: 39029
Ferrari colour: Rosso Corsa
Interior colour: Nero

Low mileage, excellent condition, recently fully serviced (belts, bearings, etc,), 328 water pump, 348 wheels/tyres, Electromotive Ignition (greatest thing out), etc.

Love the car, and proving very reliable in almost two year's ownership. Like having coupe and electric sunroof.

Another Mondial Owner/Driver

Here is a link to the Registry:

http://www.ferrarilife.com/register/view.php?id=78048

Since I purchased the car in April of 2006 it has been my primary driver. Bought it with about 19K miles, and had the 30K done late last year. New water pump, belts, valves adjusted, etc., as usual, plus lots of new hoses, etc., with a view towards good reliability for the next 30K.

I also purchased and installed a rebuilt fuse block from GT AutoParts in Arizona which has new modern circuit boards instead of the original presssed cardboard ones. Again - for future reliability.

I had the A/C rebuilt when I purchased the car so that I wouldn't be miserable in the hot summer weather, and that has held up fine - without converting to the "new freon."

Although I use it as a my principal driver, I do enjoy taking it to the track a couple of times a year, and initally I noticed a quite severe amount of body roll, first of because it is a true convertible I suppose, but also because it is essentially set up as a GT car - for comfort rather than speed. Anyway, I did have the rear sway bar upgraded to 19mm, and I do believe it drives better now, even on the road.

I do like the Bridgestone RE-01R tires.

Basically I have no complaints - only praise - for the litle car. I know it's not as flash or expensive as a lot of its brothers and sisters, but it does it for me, and that's what counts.

I love the music it makes.

Davebdave's is the one that got away from me at Shelton!!

Great car!

I also have the RE-01Rs and love them.

Where do you get the upgraded sway bar, also I hear the T has a better A/C system - is it possible to upgrade to that? The A/C just can't keep up with our sweltering summers..

Didn't like my entry so re-do

Model: Mondial T, Cabriolet
Year: 1990
Country: United States
Steering: LHD
Transmission: 5-Speed
Chassis number: 86247
Ferrari colour: Red
Interior colour: Tan

MODS:
- No Tubi: YET
- Alpine stereo/XM/CD-changer
- RADAR detector
- Custom interior mats
- Upgraded hoses, fluids
- Yoshi Shields: Temporary
- Working on a new tonneau cover and all new leather interior w/ carpets.
- Luggage from 348, just for 'documentation'
- Battery charging unit.
- Changing out original plastic side grills for 1989 T-Metal grills: OEM's too fragile, see pic.


Personal notes:
- Quick Pony: Adequate torque above 3k RPM
- Never, I mean never have doubts that I can hug the road in mountain tight corners without loosing the rear etc.: Very confident this car has power when needed.
- Somewhat confortable: after a long drive, ya' might want to loosen up.
- Turns heads: People like this over newer models as it looks more classic. Matter of fact, I consider this the last, classic looking Ferrari. The 355, 456 series [not talking F40/50 stuff as they were low numbers] were the start of the more smooth looks.
- Every time I see this on the road or in my mirrors I fall in love with the classic looks every time....sign, how could/can I part with it.

NOW, some pics: I'll post sometime using the T for camping be surprised what you can stuff in those trunks and back seat.

I have had this car for almost 5 years. Obviously, I drive it a lot. Just as Enzo intended us to do. There aren't that many Ferraris in the 100,00 mile club and I am a proud member!

Mondial 8 Coupe in New York

Model: Mondial 8 Coupe
Year 1982
Location: Rochester, New York
Color: White
Interior color: Red
Mileage: 50200

I believe this one of the very few white Mondial 8's in the USA.
If anyone out there knows of other white 8's I would like to know their locations. I also own a '63 Corvair conv. and an '88 Fiero. (I think there might be a pattern here) Chuck

My 1987 Mondial 3.2 Cabriolet

My first post here as a result of the Mondial listing enquiry, though I have read and enjoyed many of them over the past years.

Have had my 87 Mondial 3.2 Cabriolet (64921) for about 6 years, bought via a super dealer in Montreal (Steve Maman) who imported it from Switzerland. It has just 31000 kms from new, I am the third owner, and it's like new (at least to me). It's rosso corso, crema leather, black carpets and black dash, and bog-standard. Now looking for that horrible decision for next spring - buy new TRX's or perhaps new 5 spoke wheels and more modern tires.

After 17 years of parenthood, when my old but lovely 308GTS (29195) had to go, I was finally able to get another Ferrari!

Been very very happy with it, very reliable, and relatively inexpensive to maintain. Have a great Ferrari mechanic locally, who knows exactly what to do.

In the spring/summer, it is almost a daily driver, so I bought a tonneau cover for it to avoid the time-consuming raising and lowering the roof when parked. Only problem I have found is the elasticised leather straps that hold the cover in place have started to spoil the rubber door seals due to compression when the doors are closed, so now have to install new door seals.

I feel really lucky! especially as a pristine 412 joined it earlier this year. Suggestions on tires/wheels welcome, btw. Cheers!
